"Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!"
This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
When OS X was first released, I loved the new Aqua GUI. Then something went a bit wrong at Apple and the company that once championed UI consistency decided that we need not 1 - but 4 - different GUIs. We have Aqua. We have brushed metal. We have the new Tiger GUI (whatever it's called). And we have the new iTunes GUI with it's squared-off edges. And then there's iLife and the Apple Pro applications.
I'm very disappointed that Apple hasn't remained consistent with its GUI. That was always one of the Mac's great strengths. And, on a personal note, I absolutely detest the hideous, heavy, clunky "brushed metal" look. I also find the new iTunes corners very inconsistent and distracting. Every time I look at iTunes now, it irks me.
So, thank goodness for UNO!!! With a single click, UNO brings order to Apple's GUI chaos. The "sunken" look is inspired by the new Tiger (Mail, etc.) GUI and it looks wonderful. I'm so thrilled that I no longer have to stare at Safari's ugly brushed metal windows. It's sad that a third-party application is required to make the Mac feel like a Mac. Here's hoping that Apple remedies this situation in Leopard. Until then, grab a copy of UNO. It's essential.
